..and how you are consuming it.
There have been several studies regarding the memory that water molecules contain.
It potentially was started by our forefathers as the primitive way of cleansing- internal and external. Such as the use of holy water for Baptism, consumption of water / charnamrit for Hindus, etc.
The famous rice water experiment by Dr.Masaru Emoto proved it scientifically.
He added water to three beakers, and just whispered three different words to each one for one month.
One beaker only heard- “Thank you”
One beaker only heard- “You’re an idiot”
One beaker heard nothing, it was completely ignored.
At the end of the month, this is how each beaker looked.
The rice in the “Thank you” beaker began to ferment and release a pleasant aroma.
The rice in the “You’re an idiot” beaker turned black.
The rice in the beaker that was ignored began to rot.
Needless to say, this proved a massive theory that potentially already was understood by the early humans.
Words have amazing power.
Fast forward to today. The water or rather food that we consume has had its life before it went down our throats. It’s gone through rivers, fields, processing, tanks, supply pipes, through to taps, been harvested, fed to beef up, slaughtered under immense pressure, processed, packaged to have landed on our kitchen counters.
Having the knowledge we have today, we are in some capacity to undo or redo the structure of the food we consume. I conducted a similar simple experiment of sending a high-energy thought to the first glass of water I consumed every morning for 15 days. Although I don’t have the infrastructure to check the molecule structure or difference thereof, as compared to a normal water molecule- but there’s definitely a visible shift in mindset.
As much as silence is golden, words are precious.
Its important to choose words wisely, not only while communicating to people but also to your own mind and surroundings, well, including food.
Amidst all the havoc our new year has brought, I hope you find peace and calm in your meals as you build the little conversations with your nibbles.
Until next time, happy reading!
